Uncover Greater Lansing’s Local Wonders

Every corner is covered, from downtown East Lansing to Mason to Williamston, giving you easy access to plenty of local flavor. Become absorbed between the pages of the latest mystery or paperback at one of the local bookstores, like Archives Book Shop or Curious Book Shop, before stopping at Capitol Loop Gifts for a cool souvenir. On your way to the art gallery, pick up some homemade sweets, gourmet popcorn and freshly brewed coffee, or take a window shopping tour of the jewelry boutiques, comic shops and home décor havens. When it’s time to head home, stop by one of our distilleries or breweries to purchase  unique locally sourced craft beverages. You never know what local hotspot you’ll stumble upon next, and that’s what makes shopping in the Greater Lansing area such an adventure.
